Call for Abstracts


We are now accepting abstract submissions for Issue 8, Winter 2020.


What is the future of rehabilitation?

Our lives are entwined with technology. In rehabilitation science, technology is being applied in surprising ways undreamt of years before.  Will robots become a therapist’s best friend… or their replacement? Can artificial intelligence and assistive technologies enhance people’s recovery from illness and injury? Might 3D printing of prosthetics meet rehabilitation needs in low- and middle-income countries? What should we make of pharmaceutical technologies and mind-reading devices?

Whatever the question, is technology the answer? Submit your abstract / pitch your story for our Winter Issue on Technology: Adapting the Future of Rehabilitation.
